So far I can't download this game here, can I download it wia steam and use my old account with it?
Or can I copy game client folder from the steam version into off launcher and repair it?
Kuz I litterally can't download or maybe unzip all the failes from off launcher, got 189 eso .dat files (52 gb) and 28 patch data depot files 51,8 gb. Steam client hase 237 eso .dat files. Tried to copy my old 189 eso .dat files, but steam consider these as it's own placeholders and still trying to download them.
So is there an option to build a working client with these?
Copy eso .dat from steam and delete my patch data depot files?

    I can't help you with your download not working, but the version you download via steam works fine for non-steam accounts, too. I have two accounts, one steam and one non-steam, and I can start the game with my second one simply by starting the eso64.exe from the steam folder.

    Well, I have no steam version bought, using this current free acces, thats why I asking about file extractions from steam client for the off client, just to make all the files "downloaded".
    As I said, steam reserved hard drive space for placeholders and I'm already see 48 more eso .dat files there, looks like the files I can't download from off launcher.
    I guess developers should keep all the game files in same place, why I can download half of the client and can't exactly same files again and again?

    steam has a few extra files and uses a diff exe to start game but otherwise is same, like said above just shortcut that buried deep eso64

    Already downloaded and moved out of steam, using with regular launcher, but now I got game client fatal error 6 right after I press "play" in the launcher and my screen become black.

    Oh Lord, this is because of steam, I removed game cliend folder from the steam, reinstalled official launcher and deleted "game" folder of the client with .exe file infested by steam, but my launcher still downloaded a steam version of the client.
    is there files I can remove from the client to prevent my launcher download it as steam version?
    I'm afraid repair won't help, because it can consider steam version of the game is OK.
